    "Great new sci-fi concept, good story"

    The 2 authors tell the same story from 2 points of view, a idealist and a down to earth pragmatist. they pull it off nicely.

    Story
    "Great Book with an excellent ending."

    It reminded me of Dead Space in a lot of ways. Great ending. At first I was a little bored, but I was working out while listening, so I was distracted. I decided to go back to the beginning and re-listen to what I missed. I am so glad I did. Holden and Miller are a great mix of good people in two different ways. That is what makes this story good.

    "Interesting book"

    Can't wait for the SyFy series based on this book. It'll be interesting if they keep the hard science parts.

    Story
    "Read like author hoped to sell a screenplay in 50s"

    Pretty predictable. Developed characters but nothing much happened. Maybe I just have unrealistic expectations. Perhaps more action in follow-up books if there are any but I don't think I will be reading them.

    "Just OK"
    What did you like best about Leviathan Wakes? What did you like least?

    Interesting concepts


    Would you recommend Leviathan Wakes to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. It's just OK - good potential but not really that well written. There's so little time and so many better books out there.


    Was Leviathan Wakes worth the listening time?

    Just barely.


    Any additional comments?

    Another sci-fi book where the dialog between men and women seems to have been written by frat boys.

    "Excellent"

    Space opera style, but updated. Believable and well told. Fairly good character development. Family friendly too.

    "Read this book."
    If you could sum up Leviathan Wakes in three words, what would they be?

    Sci-fi power house.


    Did Jefferson Mays do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He was acceptable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I loved it from the start. Kept me interested and wanting more.

    "entertaining Sci Fi epic"

    Very good story, entertaining and lost of Sci Fi goodness. The main character comes off as untouchable/preachy which can be annoying but only real complaint.
